What the care home does well
There is a high level of satisfaction about the care that the service provides. Accommodation is provided in a warm, welcoming and well-maintained environment that meets with the satisfaction of people living there. The staff and the service users have developed good relationships with each other and care is provided in a respectful manner. The meals at the home are good and offered choices to the service users. The manager is proactive and demonstrates clear lines of accountability for the service. There is an ongoing programme of refurbishment to ensure that the home is safe and well maintained. The care plans and records of care given ensure that the service users receive the support and help they require.
What has improved since the last inspection?
The ground floor lounge and dining room have been recently refurbished and new furnishing put in place. The provider has started undertaking unannounced visits to the service and records of these were available. This was a requirement from the last visit that has been met.
What the care home could do better:
Development of the service users/ relatives` involvement in their care plans would further ensure that all care needs are recognised and met. There is no new requirement from this visit.
